What are possible causes of a swollen and itchy nipple in a young adult female?Breast Cancer Skin, Hair & Nails Women's Health
I'm a 21 year old female. I'm having issues with my left nipple for 1.5 years. It has been swollen and very itchy for quite awhile. Sometimes it gives a very slight throbbing sensation, although it is not painful. The itchiness worsens when I stay in sweaty clothes for a long time. What are possible causes, and what should I do next? Thank you.
Your symptoms sound like they way be related to some form of nipple eczema or dermatitis. Especially since the symptoms worsen with sweating and is associated with intense itch.
What you should do is to see a doctor for a consultation as only when a doctor examines the area of concern can we form a better clinical diagnosis and help you treat your condition better.
Hope this helps.
